The Fundraiser

From October 1-17, The Tricycle Collective ran an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to raise money for families to buy back their homes in auction. We successfully raised $6,421, which we used to give 11 families $500 each to place the starting bid on their homes.

This money ACTUALLY BOUGHT A HOME for 5 different families, whose houses sold for $500. It went toward the purchase of a home for 5 other families, who successfully bought houses in the auction. And for one family, the money is being spent to purchase or rent a home outside of the auction, since she was outbid.

That fundraiser is over but you can contribute online at any time. Or, if you want something (more) from your donation, consider purchasing a “Bring-a-Ling” bicycle bell- all proceeds support The Tricycle Collective.
